In cases where you are not able to access the webinar room due to network/firewall restrictions, you may have to contact your network administrators or others that have control over your network (such as your Internet Service Provider, or ISP) to make necessary adjustments.

How can I tell if I am in a heavily firewalled or restrictive environment?

  • If you are connected through a corporate or work network, please check if there are access restrictions set by your system administrators. You may want to disable any Virtual Private Network (VPN) connections that could be overly restrictive of incoming and outgoing connections.
  • You are seeing a blank or empty page when trying to connect to the webinar.
